Instantclient 11.2.0.3 on Windows XP (x86) ODBC Error

Greetings,

Trying to deploy instantclient 11.2.0.3 w/ODBC on Windows XP.

Unzipped files to c:\oracle\instantclient_11_2.
Ran odbc_install.exe.
Added c:\oracle\instantclient_11_2 to path.
Created/set TNS_ADMIN environment variable.
Reboot

Running windows ODBC Data Source Administrator to add Oracle data source gives following error:

"The setup routines for the Oracle in instantclient_11_2 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 14001."

Click OK. Next dialog box says:

"Could not load the setup or translator library."

Any ideas?

The instantclient 11.2.0.1 distribution works fine with the same setup procedure. I'm not new to instantclient--been using it for at least a year with great success. Just trying to use the latest version of the instantclient software on this computer. I also notice that the 11.2.0.1 base distribution includes a number of dll files that are not included with the 11.2.0.3 base distribution. These include a number of mfc*.dll and msv*.dll files. Does instantclient no longer support XP installs as of the 11.2.0.3 release? Did Oracle forget to include a bunch of dll files in the base 11.2.0.3 window x86 distribution? Did the deployment procedure change between 11.2.0.1 and 11.2.0.3? Am I installing 11.2.0.3 incorrectly?

We can fall back to the 11.2.0.1 distribution temporarily. But I'd like to get the newest 11.2.0.3 distribution working for our XP computers.

Thank you for your assistance.

Griffith
